MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: OCTOBER 12 – 18, 2015!
Playing on Instagram at two staff Instameets, designing posters for a Halloween podcast special, and 4 days of intensive leadership training over in Claremont, and a weekend of attempting to recharge my introverted self. *Stress eczema*
While the weather doesn't feel like fall, the morning light and evening sunset are so nice this time of years. The days are getting shorter which means better light to catch in the morning!
Pasta leftovers for my sad desk lunch. My keyboard is dirty…
Had our cute lunch time staff InstaMeet.
Walking around, coaching new Instagram users on how to use it, taking new photos, exploring the galleries…
Red rum red rum
A great way to spend lunch
Finished up promos for Dick Duquesne
And in the evening we had a second staff InstaMeet, this time with wine and some snacks!
This one was an outdoor garden sunset exploration
Such lovely evening light
And what better way to end the evening than a lovely sunset
Working through poster design for Dick's Halloween episode
Packing my things for my time in Claremont
GONNA MISS YOU TWEEDY
Met Zach on his lunch hour to grab some ramen near his work.
And then I went on my way to Claremont!
My living quarters for the next few days. I'm doing a Getty Leadership Institute program that is hosted at Claremont Graduate school. I had that online seminar the week before, but this week we have an IRL component that dives deeper into the topics we covered online.
Night one. It's been like 5 hours only and I'm already drained. I'm introverted and turning my social skills up on high really burns my energy.
Trader Joe's salad for dinner while doing my readings for the class the next day.
Two beds, one Sarah. I took all the pillows and blankets from one bed and moved them over to the other. HEAVENLY.
Oh man look at that fluff.
*Don't wake me up*
Okaaaay rise and shine
Reppin' Pacific Standard Time, ready for the first full day in class.
Views of the hotel
Back at school! *Loving it*
This whole week is like…mirror shots. Haha the day was really long and intensive, discussing leadership styles, team management, finding your strengths and weaknesses, and challenges in museum work. Very interesting, very fulfilling, lots of brain power dedicated to it…
Pizza in the courtyard
And a visit to the James Turrell Skyspace on Pomona's campus
Lovely. The color is light on metal and the square/diamond is just a hole that looks up at the sky.
Back to the hotel
Today's challenge was an all day design thinking sprint about ideas for *if* Los Angeles gets the 2024 Olympic bid.
The many *amazing* ideas from our brainstorm
After a long day, a few of us in the program went out for some beer and burgers
Back Abbey in Pomona
My face eczema is really poppin'
And the next day was a great panel on diversity, discussions about how to improve diversity in the field, and our capstone presentations! Didn't document any of it, I was a stress ball. But I did it! What an enriching and challenging few days. *Still pooped*
*MY BOYS MY BOYS I'M BACK*
If I had it my way I'd just sit in silence for the next two days to recharge from the leadership course.
But alas, it's the taping of Dick Duquesne tonight and I have to go be alive.
Cute festive pumpkins!
And there's the posters
Don't my eyes just scream *exhausted*
Trying out burgers and hotdogs on Fairfax at Golden State
Did I get shorter? BRYAN AND JAMES!
Sunday morning went to South Pas to take some photos of my little cousins for their Christmas cards.
Didn't go perfectly…ahah
My new intern
Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk
Love this weird mural that South Pas added to their Rite Aid location
My dad and my uncle and aunt went on the Harley Davidson Love Ride
My dad took me on a little ride around the neighborhood
Cuddles with Tubbs
Aw perfect baby
Sat by myself and just played the Sims 3 for like 5 hours. It was just what I needed.
Dinner with my dad and uncle and aunt out on the deck. So Californian!
Kitties wanna come out.
Got home and found Sufi sitting on my pillow. Thanks, Suf.
I’ll leave you with that!
This week I’m heading to Utah for a road trip! Feel free to follow me on Instagram @sleepywaldo if you don’t want to wait for a weekly thing. (It’ll probably be late cuz we’ll be on the road all day Monday).
Much love friends.
